PALESTINIANS LAY FOUNDATION STONE FOR MUSEUM

Muslim World

The Palestinians have started construction in the West Bank of what organisers say will be the world’s largest museum devoted to their history. Director Jack Persekian says the multimillion dollar “Palestinian Museum” will be an inclusive space that will tell the diverse stories of Palestinians on their land and the millions who live in exile. Organisers laid the groundstone on 10 April in the West Bank town of Birzeit.

Persekian says the $ 15 million first phase will take about two years to build and cover 3,000 square meters, or 32,000 square feet, of space. The project is being funded by a nonprofit development group backed by prominent philanthropists called “The Welfare Association.” The museum is not an official project but has the approval of the Palestinian Authority.
